Payday sales featuring games, consoles and accessories are live now

From ShopTo, Base and more.

With it being the end of July and with Amazon Prime Day a mere memory, online retailers are beginning to get their payday sale ranges up and running, with a selection of games, consoles and assorted merch seeing discounts.

I think they're trying to tell us something.

First up, we've got ShopTo's Pay Day offerings. The site has dedicated Sale pages for PS4, Xbox One and Nintendo, as well as a handful of console and PSVR offers.

Specifically, you'll find a PSVR (V2) bundle with the PS4 Camera, PSVR Worlds and The Persistence for £249.85, as well as PS4 1TB Slim bundles with Hidden Agenda for £279.85, a white PS4 Pro for £319.85 and a handful of Xbox One bundle offers including an Xbox One X for £419.86.

As far as games go, you can pick up The Crew 2 on PS4 or Xbox One for £29.86, or the Sega Mega Drive Classics collection for £18.85 on both Xbox One and PS4. The Nintendo Switch version of L.A. Noire is also down to £14.86 while stock lasts.

Oh, and also Titanfall 2 is down to £5.86 which is criminally cheap for that one - you should probably pick it up for that price.

Meanwhile, over at Base, you can find a NES Classic Mini for £48.85, A Way Out on Xbox One for £15.85, Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun for £9.85, Ni No Kuni 2 for £21.99, Red Faction Guerrilla ReMarsTered on PS4 for £16.99 and a whole lot more.

Finally, over at Amazon UK, you'll find a 2 for £15 range on selected Marvel blu-rays (including Thor Ragnarok and Dr Strange) as well as a 2 for £25 range on PlayStation Hits titles. You can also find the Digital-Foundry-recommended LG B7 OLED 4K TV set down to £1169 when you enter the code FACEBOOK at the Crampton and Moore checkout.
